London, Sep 5 : Venus Williams, whose tennis outfits have often raised eyebrows in the past, turned heads yet again with her choice of attire for her latest match at the US Open.
Venus was playing at Flushing Meadows in New York.
“So far this year my outfits have been based on the cities that I play in. This outfit was supposed to be about New York. It’s like bursts of fireworks,” the Daily Mail quoted her as telling fans.
The 30-year-old player may have regretted her choice of outfit, however, after it continually rode up during play to reveal a pair of flesh-coloured pants of the kind she was first spotted wearing at the Australian Open earlier this year.
Venus has worn different dresses for each of her three appearances so far in the current tournament, and hopes to continue that trend as far as the final.
“Seven is a lot of dresses. It would be an honour to wear seven dresses all the way through,” she said. (ANI)
